Patch 1.9 Notes


In version 1.8, the New Season system was implemented, and we all embarked on a brand new journey. Version 1.9 brings the fun-filled Ruins Puzzle game mode. The abstract story shards now take shape as puzzle pieces. There are nearly 40 exquisite puzzles to complete. Also coming to Norheim are two new female range Immortalsplayful Atalanta and gentle Seondeok. They bring with them new winds and sparks. Battle Reports have also been improved to show clearly how advantages and disadvantages came about in battle, allowing you to adjust your strategy accordingly. Finally, we have once again included several optimizations that improve the game experience in many ways. All details about this update are included in this update log. Continue reading to prepare for the new journey ahead.


New Features

1. Ruins Puzzle

Replaced story shards with puzzle pieces. The secrets sealed within Norheim will emerge as you complete these fascinating puzzles.

Fully complete a Story Puzzle to obtain completion rewards.

Version 1.9's optimizations focus on reducing your decision-making costs, allowing you to adjust your strategy with clearer vision. No matter how the rules change, however, working with your Alliance members will always be the best choice.

1. Tower of Knowledge Skill Tags

Added new class restriction tags to skills in the Tower of Knowledge. There are two types of tags. The first type states "No restriction", while the second type states a specific Immortal Position restriction. Skills with restriction tags can only be equipped by Immortals of the corresponding position.

2. Military Bonus Comparison

Added the Bonus Comparison feature to the Battle Statistics page in the Battle Report. This feature will help you analyze each battle and adjust your strategy accordingly.

  • How to Access: There is a new button to the right of the button that lets you switch between viewing your stats and enemy stats. Tap this button to enter the Bonus Comparison.
  • Displayed Data: You can compare all military bonuses used by both sides, allowing you to see the differences at a glance. You can also tap the dropdown button to view detailed bonus comparison data.

3. Alliance Technology

Greatly strengthened "Lower Attack Cost" and "Lower Garrison Cost". Each level now reduces AP cost by 10%, so at max level, attacking enemy cities or garrisoning allied cities will have no AP cost.

4. Academy Technology

Added new technologies that increase Attack and Defense to the Troop Technology tab. These can be unlocked after your Academy and previous technologies reach the required level.

5. Throne of the Supreme

Optimized the matching rules to make groupings in the Inter-Regional Elimination and Grand Regional Final more balanced, thus making the competition fairer.

6. Dragons

Dragons will receive new and shiny decorations when they reach Lv.50.

7. Alchemy Lab

Fragments of unsummoned Epic Immortals in the Alchemy Lab will be locked by default, so you would not accidentally dismantle them.

8. Daily Events

Added new "Alliance Recruitment" tab. Tap the button to reach the Alliance Recruitment page, then select filters such as server, kingdom, and language to quickly find a suitable Alliance.

9. Infernal Assault

Crusader Camps will now unlock new maximum levels as the seasons progress.
